So it’s time for the annual pilgrimage to Burning Man. Like so many other folks, I’m going. Unlike a lot of people, I haven’t had the ticket scramble that the selling out process led to — I bought mine back in January. Anyway, this post isn’t so much about tickets, as it is about the experience, and how I feel about the upcoming trip.
I’m super excited about it.
This year, I’m bringing my own big art project to the Burn. The Air Kraken has been a ton of work this year, and I’m so happy that I’ve gotten it done, and that it’ll be on playa. The project has gone really well due to help from my friends by way of Kickstarter contributions, INW’s Art Grant, and construction assistance. I’m super appreciative to all their wonderful help!
Check out more about the Air Kraken on my project page.
So what else is going on for the Burn? I’m planning on taking a ton of photographs this year, and that means bringing a lot of storage… I’m bringing 28GB of CF cards, and 6GB of SD cards for two cameras. I’m bringing a cool selection of lenses, too: Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 D, Sigma 21-35mm Alpha f/3.5-5.6, Nikkor 70-210mm f/4-5.6 D, and on my D80 the 18-200mm alphabet soup lens as backup. There should be lots of cool stuff to see.
If you see me on playa, I demand you ask for a portrait. See you in the desert…
